They have officially failed to block health care reform. I'm coming out of retirement for this one....

NOBODY can take THIS away from me:

Dead GOP elephant Pictures, Images and Photos

Harry Truman, Teddy Roosevelt, and all of the brothers Kennedy are smiling down upon us.

We have begun to avenge the work of Newt Gingrich and the 1994 elections. We're not finished yet, but I hope this diary can serve as a haven for which we can all come together, put aside our differences, point, laugh and feel intense mirth at the FAIL. executed by Mitch McConnell and his henchmen.

We can get back to questioning each other's commitment to progressive change later, I swear.

UPDATE: Jon Chait from TNR points and laughs best:

The Republicans eschewed a halfway compromise and put all their chips on an all or nothing campaign to defeat health care and Obama's presidency. It was an audacious gamble. They lost. In the end, they'll walk away with nothing. The Republicans may gain some more seats in 2010 by their total obstruction, but the substantive policy defeat they've been dealt will last for decades.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
